Milestone: Blume eyes birthday No. 99

Sequim’s Dorothy Blume was born Tiffin, Ohio, on May 15, 1915, and she will celebrate her 99th birthday on Thursday.

She has lived in Sequim for the past 40 years, several of those in Happy Valley. She is an avid bridge player and belongs to numerous bridge groups. She has played bridge for Cards for Cardiac for more than 35 years.

Her secret for longevity? Exercise and a devil-may-care attitude.

Attending the celebration will be her two sons Roger and Fred and three grandchildren — Sherry, Roger Jr. and Darren.
